SHOW PONY aka Meg Tait!

SHOW PONY aka Meg Tait!

Inspired by a long-term fascination with words, fonts, fairgrounds (and a touch of kitsch), Show Pony creates illuminated artworks & fairground-inspired signs, often embellished with gold and fitted with light bulbs. Alongside these are typographic prints, and painted cut-outs featuring icons of popular-culture. Self-identifying as a ‘word clown’, Tait graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art whilst suspended from the ceiling in a horse costume, under the title ‘Well Hung’. This playful use of words has carried through into her practice as Show Pony.
